FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – A Fayetteville woman was arrested on suspicion of stealing $144 worth of eye shadow on Sept. 1, police say. Brandy Allen, 31, was booked into the Washington County Detention Center at 3:04 p.m. and faces charges of shoplifting and disorderly conduct.
Police were called to the Ulta Beauty Store at 3835 N. Mall Ave. #1 to deal witha shoplifter, according to a preliminary report.
The caller said she saw Allen grabbing handfuls of make-up without looking at the color or labels. She didn’t appear to be checking prices, either, the report states.
An officer arrived at the store and approached Allen. The original caller introduced herself to Allen as the general manager of the store and asked to see the contents of her purse, the report states.
Allen fumbled through her purse for several minutes before taking out several different packages of eye shadow, and as she pulled out the items, she’d run her fingers through the tops of each one, trying to make the eye shadow look used, according to the report.
Allen continued to dig through her purse, and the store manager pointed out some red eyeliner that an employee had helped Allen get at the counter. She insisted that the eyeliner was hers, and she twisted it and broke it in half in front of the officer and store manager to make it appear used, according to the report.
